The Making of “Repetition and Variation of Trees”
Reference image & Colors For the Artwork
This artwork started with a photo of the main subject & the feeling that the client wanted to convey. To determine what size canvas would be best, and what colors would be used, a visit was made. Photos were taken onsite with color swatches to serve as a reference while painting.
The Development Process
Studies with Different Designs
Studies in oil pastel were made to find suitable scenery for it. A total of four were made until the client was satisfied with the artwork’s direction.
Updates On the Artwork
The colors were blocked in. More detail was added from the background elements to the foreground. After seeing the rock and leaves drawing the eye away, they were modified.
Completing the Painting
Hanging Up The Artwork
After the last touches were added to the painting, varnish was applied to it. Then, this artwork was hung on the wall.
